This recipe for Cranberry Relish with Pomegranate, Pineapple & Orange is so delicious, you’ll be eating it by the spoonful!  It’s sweet and only a tiny bit tart, so even the cranberry haters will enjoy it!


  • 1 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 cup of pomegranate juice
  • 1 package of fresh whole cranberries (16oz)
  • 1 can of drained mandarin oranges, sliced in half (12 to 14 oz)
  • 1 can of drained pineapple tidbits (12 to 14 oz)
  • 4 oz chopped pecans


  1. Combine sugar, pomegranate juice and cranberries in a large saucepan. Bring to boil over high heat, cover and reduce heat to medium-low.
  2. Continue cooking for 15 minutes. (You will probably hear the cranberries popping.)
  3. Remove cranberry mixture from the heat and with the side of your spatula or spoon, gently crush most of the cranberries.
  4. Add in your oranges, pineapples and pecans. (With recipes like this, I like to start with about 3/4 the amount called for and give it a taste test to make sure the remainder of the ingredients are needed.)
  5. Allow the sauce to cool before serving.


I found the sauce was even better the 2nd day, so this is a great dish to prepare ahead of time!
